Review by Kayla, In Love & Words Teen Reader
Overall Rating: 4 Stars
Title: The Golden Boy
Author: Seven Steps
Series: St. Mary’s Academy #3
I fell in love by accident.
I barely knew Julius Samson.
He was the king of the school. I was the queen of the nerds.
We were star-crossed from the beginning.
Still, he held my hand.
Took me in.
Made me feel safe.
He became my sanctuary.
I never wanted to leave his side.
If I could’ve stayed forever, I would have.
But we could never be.
Because my future depended on ruining his.
Inspired by Megera (Meg) from the story of Hercules, The Golden Boy is a poignant, emotional, young adult contemporary romance about a teen girl’s hard choices, loss, and love.
St. Mary’s Academy is a young adult contemporary romance series that brings classic fairytale characters to life in a modern day, high school setting. It’s filled with angsty heroines, hot heroes, and drama galore. St. Mary’s Academy Shorts are shorter stories from within the St. Mary’s Academy universe.
Short yes, but sweet? TOTALLY!
OhMyGosh this book could have been made into a full on novel rather than just a shorter side story! I so wanted more to this because I really enjoyed it. What made me enjoy this story the most was definitely the book boyfriend, but then again, don’t the book boyfriends always sell you on the book if they are basically perfect? Meg wasn’t one of my favorite characters because I felt like she was a little naive through most of the story but if she wasn’t, then the plot probably wouldn’t have worked out like it did. If this book was made into a longer version, I would’ve wanted to see how it turned out with the families, especially Julius’s siblings.
